  • MATH 327: Group Theory

My research concerns the geometry and topology of arithmetic groups, a fascinating area lying at the intersection of algebraic number theory and differential geometry.

Areas in which I have a particular interest include:

  • algebraic number theory
  • hyperbolic geometry
  • cryptography
  • history of mathematics

Benjamin Linowitz Receives Grant

August 6, 2019

Assistant Professor of Mathematics Benjamin Linowitz was awarded a three-year, $176,562 grant (award number 1905437) from the National Science Foundation to support his project titled "RUI: The Geometry of Arithmetic Locally Symmetric Spaces." This research focuses on the spectral geometry of arithmetic hyperbolic manifolds and lies at the intersection of number theory and differential geometry. The grant will provide funds to support undergraduate participation in this research and to organize a workshop on innovative teaching practices in geometry and topology.
